      Cool Sky BB usage.

      Hi all!
      Does anyone know how tough sky are if you go over the usage limits?
      I am connected to the base package, as all I use broadband for is surfing and email, yet according to the traffic monitor in McAffee, I am quickly racking up the Mb's.

      Re: Sky BB usage.

      If you are only using it for surfing and email, you will not be using a lot. If you are not using the wireless it is better to turn of the wireless access point, so no one can steal your bandwidth. I don't think there is any reports yet of users being punished for exceeding their limit. This is bound to be applied some day though, probably when Sky have enabled the rush of new users.
